Japanese kids who skip breakfast lose their virginity sooner

According to the results of a survey of 1,500 men and women aged 16 to 49 conducted by the Japan Family Planning Association, middle-schoolers who skip breakfast first become sexually active at an average age of 17.5, while those who eat breakfast daily don’t get their feet (or whatnot) wet until age 19.4.
The researchers suggest that the link between breakfast habits and the onset of sexual activity is rooted in domestic factors influencing eating and sexual behaviors separately, i.e., kids from homes where breakfast is not served for whatever reason are likely to grow up in environments where discipline, at least in the ream realm of nooky, is not likely to be as strong as in homes where family meals are afforded more importance. This may be borne out by the researchers’ finding that kids who found their mothers annoying started having sex earlier in their lives.
As the article notes as something of an afterthought, almost 40% of married couples surveyed had not had sex in over a month, citing as reasons fatigue and regarding sex as a chore. 40%? That’s nuts (or, well, not). I’d like to see an age-group breakdown of that statistic, which is nothing short of alarming, although can’t say for sure how it compares to the situation in the U.S.
